The “Why?” Factor

Goals are a common topic among fitness professionals and clients. I believe it is safe to say that most people have, at the very least, a general goal in regards to their overall health and fitness. Even the apathetic guy at the drive-thru 5 days a week has a goal. It may be to continue to live the way he does without a heart attack, but it’s still a goal.

You Are What You Eat!

I recently returned home from vacation in California, the land where my personal weight loss story began. I was there primarily to visit some family and friends, but ended up with an interesting revelation. The old saying goes, “You are what you eat.” Now, I’m not sure where it came from, or how it caught on, but we have all heard this saying at some point in our lives.

If a contractor wanted to build a building that would last for one hundred years, then it is...
